For a country where tabloid-led witch hunts and collective hysteria are the order of the day, the reactions to the tragic Cumbria shootings have been surprisingly sober.
Most parties accept that no law can shelter society from an unpredictable switch flicking like it did in Derrick Bird's case.
Beyond a call or two in favour of even tighter gun laws and a few questions on how quick the police were to react, no-one has attempted to whip up hysteria and make political hay of such a tragedy.
That is, until the Redneck's Gazette, widely known as The Sun, decided that a focus for outrage had to be found regardless.
Within 24 hours of the Cumbria murders, the target came in the guise of Lady GaGa (Lady Gore Gore- Lady GaGa sparks fury with cannibal-murder scene in stage show).
According to The Sun, it's "sick" that the singer's current UK tour includes a stage act featuring red paint and death poses.
So does the Sun expect every single videogame, CD or DVD in the country with the slightest reference to violence to be taken off the shelves too?
Can that "paper" function without concocting faux outrage, even when it's so blatantly meaningless?
